Oh, François! You know…even though I’ve dropped so many hardcore hints that you need to add a “Karen” to your Audacious Lipstick line, and even though you keep ignoring said hints, you’re still my number one makeup guy. I’m not mad atcha’ for not including K-Money among the new fall shades of your Audacious Lipsticks.
Yes, I just referred to myself in third person. With my street name. KAY. MON. EEE.
NARS has six new limited edition fall lippies, and there’s a lot of brown! It’s very autumn leaves. Some of the colors look similar to existing Audacious shades at first glance. I mean, I thought they’d be easy to dupe, so at first I was like, “Eh, show me something I haven’t seen before,” but they’re actually tweaked a li’l bit.
Like Dayle, which is the light purple, looks like it could dupe Dominique in the tube, but it’s quite a bit paler on the lips, and it’s the same with most of the other new colors — they look similar to existing shades but really aren’t.
The only shade that really does seem to be super similar to an existing shade is reddish brown Louise, which could be a stand-in for Sandra, one of the permanent shades.
The Audacious lippies are the ones with the magnetic cap that automatically twists and clicks into place, and they’re all, across the board, intensely pigmented. I think of them as the solidified version of the NARS Powermatte Liquid Lipsticks.
If the idea of sheer lipstick makes you wanna toss your head back and go “HAHAHAHA, NO SON!” they’re for you. They’re intense, long-lasting, and they don’t settle into fine lines. They’re a lot like the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks like that.
Big surprise, the one I’ve been wearing most of this new batch is nude warm beige Vibeke. It looks so good with warm golden brown eyeshadows and peach blushes.
All six of the new Audacious Lipsticks are limited edition, and you can find them at NARS counters now for $32 a pop.
